Watch the video premiere for When The City Lights Dim, the new single from Canadian singer-songwriter Cold Specks - aka Al Spx.

The track fuses blues, indie, soul and gospel influences for a rich, intense sound that has attracted rave reviews from critics.

"I work really hard on my songs; we spent a year and a half working on arrangements and structures," the 23-year-old said last year, of her debut album I Predict a Graceful Expulsion. "I hope people don't just put me in a group with Adele and Amy Winehouse."

Take a look at her new video single below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
